Wanted: A red, white and blue song for Britain


I’M American. With the exception of my son, born in a peaceful era, all the men in my family have served in the military. My grandfathers served in World War l, my father and uncles in World War ll, my first husband (may he rest in peace) served in Korea, my husband and my brother in Vietnam. I’m a patriot; not because these men in my life sat around talking about the wars in which they served but because I love my country. I’m a walking American flag – red hair, white skin, blue eyes.

I’ve been subscribed to TCW since 2017, I believe. I’m Republican and when I couldn’t find any Republicans here to talk to, I found support for my then president, President Trump, on TCW and those supporters became friends and those site friends became dear friends and we keep in touch through emails and Face Time (face to face, real time chat) on Facebook. I went through Brexit with you all, praying and praying you’d be freed from the EU.

I don’t have to tell anyone reading this about what is going on in America today – you are as savvy about my government as we are, and you all seem to have memories as long as your own incredible history. You understand: you get it. There are days when I’m so blue and so worn out by the constant onslaught of misery and lying and cheating that goes on in Washington DC, and some of the States, that I had to find a place to rest my brain. I found this song and now I play it every day because it gives me a thrill and makes me laugh and makes me happy and lightens the load considerably. After I found it, I started watching ‘reaction videos’ of folks who sampled it. The starkest impression I got was from the British. Here’s the first one:

He’s young and I love his enthusiasm. Took him a bit to work it out but he got there!

Then there’s this one: 

He’s a little chatty but they are a delightful young couple.

I love these guys. I watch a lot of their videos. 

I think the United Kingdom is yearning for a song such as the one featured in these videos. You have every bit of the patriotism for your country that we have for ours. I read your comments every day in TCW. With your history, can you imagine the thrill of singing about accomplishments and bravery and love of country? Gosh! That would be fantastic!
